An authorised representative is responsible for managing the
My Health Record of someone who is not able to make decisions for themselves. This could be for their child under 14 years or someone 14 years and over. 

In some cases, there may be more than one authorised representative who can manage a child’s My Health Record provided they are eligible on the same basis. For example, both parents of a child can apply to be an authorised representative. An authorised representative must act according to the will and preferences of the person they represent.

See Digital Health for more information about authorised representatives.
